About The St Leonards Academy

At The St Leonards Academy we believe that a curriculum is more than simply the content that a student studies.

To us, a curriculum is the total sum of the experiences that a student has as part of their time with us. Our curriculum reflects the idea that being a student at The St Leonards Academy means having a fully immersive and supportive education that wraps around you, that challenges and inspires you in the classroom, that extends your learning into the community and world of work and that develops your character to allow you to be the very best version of yourself that you can be.
